At Wee Care we believe that the first years of a child’s life are fundamentally important. These are the cornerstone years that shape a child’s future.
We believe that children grow, learn and develop rapidly when they receive love, warmth, attention, encouragement, mental stimulation and nutritious well-balanced meals, with this in mind we promote in all of our nurseries:
Lauren Burton (King's Road branch)
Hello, my name is Lauren Burton and I am the Coordinator at Kings Road. I joined the Wee Care team in 2014 after working for 11 years at a local toy store. I began working in our Toddler Branch where I completed my Level 3 diploma in Children's Care, Learning and Development and worked my way up to Unit Head. I moved to Kings Road in 2018 to take on the challenging role of Deputy Coordinator and was delighted to be reunited with some friends I had cared for as toddlers.
I hold a Level 5 diploma in Children's Care, Learning and Development and I am the Designated Safeguarding Officer for Kings Road. I am trained in Paediatric First Aid, Food Hygiene, Health and Safety and Fire Awareness. I also hold Level 3 certificates in ASD Conditions and Child Psychology.
I am a busy Mum of three and my family and I spend a lot of time camping and exploring the great outdoors. Outdoor play provides a multitude of benefits to young children. It helps to build confidence and actively promotes physical development, motivation and creativity. We have a fantastic (award winning) outdoor space here at Kings Road filled with a variety of challenging equipment, toys and natural resources.
It's a wonderful thing to be able to come to work every day and enjoy it. We have a great team here and every day is filled with fun and laughter, I am excited to see what the future will bring!
"It's our daughter's last day today, she has been going to Wee Care since she was 10 months old. It's the end of an era! I just want to thank all of the staff for their kindness, and for giving my daughter a home from home, in a safe and caring environment - with the added bonus of having lots of wee pals to get messy with :). She's laughed, loved and played lots.........and is just growing up too fast! Thanks for all that you do."
